History

A strong Minneapolis firm, thirty years and counting

Schechter Dokken Kanter Andrews & Selcer (SDK) was formed in 1990 by five men (pictured above) who left an established national firm in an effort to create a firm that made sense for clients. What resulted was our mid-size firm, focused on knowing each and every client on a personal level. We apply our intense technical training and background from the former large firm to each client situation.

Our mission is clear:

To help our clients and people maximize their business and personal potential.

We service clients in a variety of industries with standard accounting needs such as tax, audit and general bookkeeping or business services work. We are also well known for our successful forensic accounting department where we provide business valuation and litigation consulting among other services.

Although much of our work is for clients in the private sector, we are favorably registered with the PCAOB (Public Company Accounting Oversight Board), which makes us part of a small and select group qualified to practice before the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

We are also a member of the AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants) in the Private Companies Section (PCPS); the Center for Public Company Audit Firms; the Governmental Audit Quality Center; and the Employee Benefit Audit Quality Center. These memberships not only exemplify the excellent work we produce for you, they are indicative of the high ethical standards we bring to the profession as well.

At SDK, we employ a group of 70 talented individuals. We are based in Minneapolis, MN, however our reach is international and our resources augmented due to our membership with Allinial Global.

Allinial Global is an international association of 229 member firms with collective revenues exceeding $4 billion USD that share educational, client service, technical and marketing resources and expertise.
